For the fifth time this season it’s Viñales, Quartararo and Marquez – not necessarily in that order – who will fly from the front row. Rossi will start his 400th Grand Prix from the pointy end of Row 2, his best qualifying since the British GP, as Danilo Petrucci (Ducati Team) leads the Ducati charge from P5. 2016 Phillip Island winner Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) claimed P6 in Sunday morning Q2, the British star will line up ahead of the two Aprilia Racing Team Gresini machines of Aleix Espargaro and Iannone. Jack Miller (Pramac Racing), donning a special home Grand Prix livery, will have to deal with the two RS-GPs at the start of the race as he aims for a home soil GP podium from eighth. Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso had a very quiet Q2 to close out the top 10, with Franco Morbidelli (Petronas Yamaha SRT) and Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) joining the Italian on the fourth row for today’s race.
